This is our first do it yourself project we have ever done on our blog so we hope the instructions are easy to understand. In order to make a lounge collar you need the items listed below.
Bungee cord (any color)
First you need to loosely measure around your dog’s neck and add about 2 inches.
Cut the bungee cord and put the key ring on the bungee cord (as shown in picture below). We used about 3 feet of kite string for Penny’s 12” lounge collar. You will probably need more string for a bigger collar.
You need to wrap about 1” of the bungee cord thru the ring then tie the kite string around the bungee cord close to the ring (as shown below) but leave enough room for the ring to slide. I wrapped the bungee cord to where it was doubled for 1”
Then wrap the kite string tightly around the bungee cord multiple times and tie it at the end as many times as needed.
And just repeat on the other side.
Now your dog has their own lounge collar. No more itchy necks because you have a tight collar on 24/7.
We wear these all the time and only put our collars on if we go outside. These lounge collars may not last as long as the fancy ones off the internet, but these don’t cost $50 either.
I guess y’all heard that Mini won’t be posting as much anymore. Which means I’M TAKING OVER THE BLOG!!! (for awhile). I hope that I can keep y’all entertained with stuff here on the farm. Today I’m going to show y’all something, something that is not good (not good at all). My coat doesn’t fit me any more!
And that’s not all… My rain coat doesn’t even fit me (and it’s suppose to be cold all this week ). Being pregnant is a little bit of a pain but It’s also nice. If you want to see all the reasons, click here to get to Mini’s post: Being a mama dog part 1.
Since I’m pregnant I got this new coat… Well it’s not exactly a coat, but it’s something to be warm in (it was made out of an pajamas pants leg). It also fits around my belly and it’s not tight so now I have something to wear.
Hi everyone, I now have puppies! I am going to layoff posting for awhile. Being a mama dog keeps me busy so I can’t post as often as I used to. Don’t worry though, I might post a few things when I have time and something interesting to share.
We heard that February is pet dental month. We started working on our teeth back in December. Since it is pet dental month we wanted to share how much our teeth improved over about 2 months of eating Greenies, a bag of 4health dental treats, a lot of brushing and a bit of scraping at home.
I think eating the Greenies helped loosen up the plaque while also taking some off.
We got the 4health dental treats for our breath and they did their job well. After eating them our breath was better.
Here are the before and after pics of my teeth. I know it looks uncomfortable to take these pictures but I actually didn’t mind.
Here are Barbarella’s before and after pics.
Barbarella’s teeth didn’t change much, but all the stuff sure helped mine. Hopefully we can get our teeth to where they have no plaque on them at all.
